Description
First of all I have to say that the idea is not mine, but Domcoppinger’s. I have used his mods “More Dragons”, “Even More Dragons” and “Most Dragons” for a while, but after some time I found myself quiting Skyrim, deactivating the mod or activating another, and starting Skyrim again, everytime I went into or out of a town or village.

There had to be an easier way. This mod works in a similar way as Domcoppinger’s mods, but switching can be done ingame through the use of a spell to which a script is attached. After casting the spell you are presented with a menu from which you can select one of six different timings of dragon encounters: Most, More, Many, Default, Less, Least. Most, More and Many are similar to Domcoppinger’s mods Most Dragons, Even More Dragons and More Dragons respecitively. Default is the same as Skyrim’s default time between encounters. I have added Less and Least in case you want to have the least chance of being disturbed by dragon attacks during an important mission. Most important however is the possibility to change the setting ingame.

The spell tome for the spell can be found under the table in the ruined house in between Fort Greymoor and the Western Watchtower.

Be careful using the More and Most settings, at least inside villages and towns, as there may appear two or maybe even three dragons at the same time. If you’re in bad luck they may annihilate an entire village.

Also, I would advice anyone to install Arthmoor's Unofficial Patches (Skyrim, Dawnguard, Hearthfire, Dragonborn and/or High Resolution). These patches resolve quite a lot of bugs in the original game or its DLCs.

I use Wrye Bash to install mods that I have downloaded from other sites. Mods from the Steam Workshop only install an .esp and a .bsa file in the Data folder (which are easy to delete), but others may not. Wrye Bash keeps track of all installed and overwritten files, keeps a backup of overwritten files and restores these files when uninstalling a mod. I've seen quite a lot of frustrating complaints about mods that wouldn't be necessary when at least using LOOT.

LOOT (formerly BOSS) is a must have if you are using mods. It's quite easy to install and to use. TES5Edit is also quite easy to install but a little more difficult to use. I use these two programs together with Wrye Bash (mod manager) ever since the release of Skyrim and have never run into any problem, unless I caused the problems myself while modding. Biggest problems while using mods are incorrect load order and conflicting mods. I would advice anyone who is using mods at least to install LOOT and use it whenever installing a new mod before playing the game with that new mod. I use TES5Edit to find conflicts with mods that I'm using myself, but ofcourse can't use it to find conflicts with all those thousands of mods that are available.

ive heard of these 2 programs but dont use any of them, as it would be a hassle to install both programs if it involves a big long process to do tbh. ill go in manually and see if changing the load order in the data files helps, so thanks for the advice

@Doge: Are you familiar with LOOT and TES5Edit? If so, try using these to find out what's causing the problem, either problems with load order or mod interference. Also, you can send me a list with the mods you are using to info@elder-scrolls.nl

im pretty sure i always wait at least 2 seconds before releasing the button, plus i tried dual casting it, but that doesint work so far

@Doge: Are you using the correct mouse button when casting the spell? Are you pressing that button for some 2 or 3 seconds before releasing the button?
Doge Jun 14 @ 10:09am 
yea, no message box at all, ie spell doesint do anything
Altbert  [author] Jun 14 @ 9:43am 
@Doge: No, I can't because you gave me too little info. You can cast the spell, so you have installed and activated the mod. It could be caused by an other mod interfering or incorrect load order. After casting the spell you should see a messagebox in which you should choose between Most, More, Many, Default, Less, Least. Try using LOOT for load order and/or TES5Edit to find a possible interfering mod.
